Spins, waves and interactions 2018


It is our great pleasure to announce the fifth 'Spins, waves and Interactions' seminar in autumn 2018 in the picturesque town of Greifswald. We prepared many interesting and exciting topics throughout solid state physics with a special focus on magnetism, spintronics and terahertz radiation. In addition to the talks and the poster session, the seminar will leave plenty of time for discussions and networking.


Greifswald University was founded 1456 and is one of the oldest universities in central Europe. Greifswald is part of the Hanseatic League and it radiates its maritime flair in one of the sunniest regions in Germany. The seminar will take place at the beautiful 'Krupp Kolleg,' which is situated in the historical center of the old university and city of Greifswald, right next to St. Nicholas' Cathedral. Street address: Martin-Luther-Strasse 14, 17489 Greifswald.


The seminar will start with a joint dinner on Tuesday August 28 at 7pm and the scientific program ends on Thursday August 30 at 12.30pm. There is an excursion (Peenemünde) planned for Thursday afternoon.



Please make sure to book your hotel or other accommodation (⇒ hotel list) well in advance. There is no particular conference hotel.

Conference fee

There is no fee to attend the seminar, because it is supported by the Stiftung Alfred Krupp Kolleg Greifswald. However, the travel, the hotel and the dinner on Tuesday and Wednesday has to be paid by everyone individually.


Please register online until July 30, 2018 (at the latest).


We look forward to seeing you all in August
